Events | April 16, 2024

What an incredible journey it has been! As the dust settles and the echoes of excitement still resonate, we are overwhelmed with gratitude for the overwhelming support and enthusiasm shown during our Gamers for Giving 2024 LAN party and Streamathon.

With joy in our hearts, we’re thrilled to announce that together, we’ve achieved something truly remarkable: raising over $1.25 million, setting a new record for Gamers Outreach and marking our biggest fundraiser to date!

Over the course of the weekend we announced program updates for GO Kart, Player 2, and The GRID. Along with our goal for 2024 – give this a read to see our plans for the funds raised during this monumental event.

Our Biggest LAN Yet

To the over 1200 attendees who brought the energy and spirit of camaraderie to the George Gervin GameAbove Center, your presence illuminated the event and made it an unforgettable experience for everyone involved. Your enthusiasm and support fueled our efforts and reminded us of the profound impact that gaming can have beyond entertainment.

The Power of Streamers and Gaming

None of this would have been possible without the unwavering dedication and generosity of all the streamers and their communities.

To the passionate gamers who joined us in person and the countless individuals who supported us online: your contributions make a tangible impact on the lives of countless children in hospitals around the world, and will be felt for years to come.

Thank You Hermitcraft and Friends

A special shoutout goes to the incredible Hermitcraft community, whose extraordinary efforts saw them raising over $840,000, an awe-inspiring testament to the power of collective action and shared passion. 

This builds on their October 2022 charity stream, where they raised $439,000 towards Gamers Outreach programs. Bringing their lifetime fundraising total to over $1.2 million!!

Hermits and friends, your commitment to making a difference is truly inspiring, and we’re honored to have your support! We look forward to sharing more impact updates as more GO Karts are placed in hospitals throughout this year.
